Nickelodeon is looking to slime some athletes. The network said yesterday that it's starting a sports awards show modeled after its popular Kids' Choice Awards honoring the highs and lows in entertainment, The Associated Press reports.
"Kids' Choice Sports 2014," with former football star and daytime talk-show host Michael Strahan as executive producer and host, is planned for July 17 in Los Angeles.
Nick viewers will vote on their favorite teams, players and sports moments -- some serious, some not so serious. As always, some of the stars will get "slimed," or covered in the bright green gunk that always gets a young audience laughing.
The Kids' Choice Awards, to be held March 29 with Mark Wahlberg as host, is annually one of the network's most popular programs. Last year's show was seen live by just under 6 million people, with the audience totaling 12 million during a weekend's worth of reruns.
